1 L swing top growler purchased at the brewery on Sun., 04/13/2014, poured into my The Bruery "Rue the Day" larger snifter glass, unknown brewing/bottling date, drank over an hour

A: 2/3 - dark-brown coloration; little clarity due to color (not hop or chill haze); small white bubbles coming off the bottom of the glass and emerge as a creamy tannish/mocha head that clings to the glass and reagitates on swirling

S: 9/12 - lots of coffee and hop - pine, resiny and citrus/grapefruit notes - smells to me more like a good black IPA than a "India Black Coffee Saison" as advertised as I'm getting no saison character in the nose; also little malt or alcohol character; no flaws

T: 15/20 - in the front of the mouth, there's a roasted malt and coffee bitterness that subsides as the Simcoe takes over - pine, citrus/grapefruit and resiny; nice balancing roasted malt and coffee comes back in; finishes super dry with little-to-no detectable alcohol

M: 4/5 - moderate carbonation; light-to-moderate body; moderate hop oils from Simcoe; high drinkability

O: 8/10 - again, I enjoyed this beer, but I expected something a little different from the advertisement as a saison; instead, this tastes like a solid black IPA; recommended regardless when on tap at the brewery

TOTAL - 38/50

Draft offering at the source. Pours brown with a finger of mocha froth. Some patchy lace sticks to the glass but otherwise displays solid powers of retention. Some lighter brown clarity is seem around the edges.

The aroma is roasty like coffee and chocolate. A bit earthy reminescent of saison yeast with some mild spice inclusion. A bit io herbs and earth to mineral inclusion. A hint of lemon is noted across the back with a little veggy and sulfuric note when swirled. The nose starts off fairly enjoyable and goes downhill unfortunately pretty fast.

Thw taste isnbitter and roasty like espresso and black patent grain. A bit of mineral inclusion is noted mixed with some earth tones. There is verybmild saison quality spicy yeast aspects to this kinda like the yeast wasnt stressed at all during fermentation. The aftertaste is a bit leather and has a hint of tobacco. Luckily those mineral notes were fairly surpressed here in the flavor.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. At this point in my "drinking career" ive had a few coffee saisons and im honestly still not sold on the idea despite trying to enjoy them. This one was not bad, just the mineral aspect I could live without and would greatly increase my overall enjoyment if it wasnt there.

Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. India black coffee saison.This batch at 6.9% abv. Local coffee that generates a good coffee aroma. Black bodied and lacey. Above average mouthfeel. Very coffee yet well done and tasty for what it is. Hopped, and I prefer that to coffee myself.
